The Rumeli Castle was built by the Ottoman Turks in just 3 months in 1452, at the opposite shores of the earlier Anatolian Castle (1393) in order to block the entrance of the Bosphorus during the Siege Of Constantinople (May 29, 1453).

The Castle is museum now. You can visit it also, If you have a chance to see a concert there you will never forget. Great ambiance!
